I am asking this question for somebody else.
Anyway, he is 16, and has just started 6th form. He has been looking for jobs all summer and still is, and has not been successful. He has applied to over 100 jobs and has excellent exam results:
GCSEs: 2 A*s in Maths and RS 7 As in Geography, History, Biology is Chemistry, Physics, English Literature and Computing. 1 B in English Language 1 C in French And 1 A grade in an AS subject.
He has done the Silver Duke of Edinburgh award, and helps out at the local youth club.
However, it is still impossible for him to get a job. This is his first job and has only done a week of work experience in a small startup company, so he doesn't really have any experience, and no employment history.
Anyway, from my last question, the general consensus of the answers is that the person needs to "Dumb Down" their CV, as for some reason that I simply cannot comprehend, employers often prefer the less smart workers, so then they will not leave and other things.
What are the best ways to do this without lying?
What is the best level to do this to?
TL;DR: How can you turn a CV from a good one to a bog-standard, exceedingly average one, without lying?
